Last year, United Way of Erie County support impacted over 16,000 individuals. It may have been someone battling cancer, someone suffering from physical and mental disabilities; a family who lost their home to fire to or a woman who left her home due to physical and sexual abuse; from those children who need a mentor to those youth who need to feel that they belong. Many lives were changed.
We invite you to be a part of the change. Together, united, we can inspire hope, fund services, and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. That is what it means to LIVE UNITED.
Financial support is the easiest and most powerful way to invest in your community and LIVE UNITED. Regardless of what you are able to give, your investment is making powerful and long-lasting changes throughout your community. Remember, by working together we can accomplish more than anyone can on their own.
Invest in your community. GIVE NOW to United Way of Erie County.
